Historical Photos

Photographs are all from the early part of the Twentieth Century. Through these photographs, we can gain an appreciation of the first century ever documented in this way from its earliest days. Now, not only with words but with pictures we can form our mental images of the early Twentieth Century. In this century of innovation, the photographs and films of our archival memory have formed a document of time gone by, giving vivid clarity to our increasingly well-documented historical record, a time machine indeed.
